Weekly News

Hello! I’m back from my Florida vacation. I spent time with family, saw my brother graduate, dorked out at the Harry Potter portions of Universal, and generally enjoyed my days off. But all break must come to an end, and I know you must be in need of a news fix. I know I am.

This first story shows brilliant public relations in the face of a customer service crisis. I love the bucket!

There is zero chance anyone will ever confuse a rapper and a gynecologist. Nope, not even a sliver of a chance.

I gotta admit that I picked this next story because of the imagery of a wandering drunken gas planet. I heart science!

That’ll do it for this evening. See you all in seven.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    The two names aren’t even spelled the same. What the heck was that rapper thinking?

      I don’t think he was thinking at all–just trying to push his own agenda at the expense of someone who fought harder than he thought they might. Good on the doctor.

  2. FCK on the bucket is brilliant!
    The Harry Potter areas at Universal are really amazing, aren’t they? Glad you had a good time.

      I love the buckets. Whoever is in charge of KFC’s advertising now is really sharp–both here and in the UK.

      I loved the Universal areas for Harry Potter. I had earlier only been on the first ride which opened back in the early days, but now there is so many more. The train, the rides, and the two shopping areas are such a great experience. I really did enjoy myself.

  3. Those first two stories do leave me wondering about the human ability to survive – just one long, slow sigh. However, at least the solar system’s okay… and a bit tipsy 🙂
